FTX cyber-scam with a Ukrainian trace: millions of dollars merged into a black hole - Zakharova

USA (bbabo.net), - The official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry, Maria Zakharova, drew attention to the fact that the Ukrainian trace in the collapse of the cryptocurrency giant is the FTX crypto exchange, whose founder Sam Bankman-Fried, attracted hundreds of millions of dollars through its financial mechanisms to help Ukraine, there are almost no mentions in the Western press.

“Thousands of people from all over the world have been donating for months, believing that they are helping Ukraine, but in fact pouring them into the black hole of a cryptocurrency corrupt financial pyramid,” Zakharova wrote today on December 5, in her telegram channel, comparing the bankruptcy of the largest crypto exchange FTX with the sinking of the Titanic.

The diplomat drew attention to the fact that “at first glance, it may seem that this event has nothing to do with the political agenda, if not for one “but”.

As Zakharova pointed out, since March of this year, FTX founder Sam Bankman-Fried has raised hundreds of millions of dollars through his financial mechanisms to help Ukraine.

“Thanks to his cooperation with the “Ministry of Digital Transformation” of Ukraine, a special mechanism was created to transfer funds from different parts of our planet,” the diplomat states.

The investigation is underway, all the details are still unclear, perhaps one of the largest cyber fraud scams in the entire existence of digital means of payment. This story was recently unearthed by the journalists of the Austrian Exxpress, “but for some reason it was quickly hushed up, and there is almost no mention of the“ Ukrainian trace ”in the collapse of the cryptocurrency giant in the Western press,” the official representative of the Russian Foreign Ministry notes.

“Symbolically: the imaginary currency that IT scammers turned real money into is a great metaphor for the imaginary power that the regime of (Ukrainian President Volodymyr) Zelensky seeks to impose on Ukrainians,” she said, adding, Failed money for failed state (failed money for failed state).

Against this background, according to Zakharova, “the decision, prepared in advance and announced today, to declare Zelensky the person of the year according to the Financial Times, turned into a tough trolling.”

“The motivation is disarming with an undisguised mockery of common sense: “The President of Ukraine has become the flagship of the democratic world in the global struggle against authoritarianism, which can determine the course of this century,” the diplomat comments.

“By the way, it is possible that the Grain from Ukraine program will turn into the same result as the collection of cyber funds to help the “flagships of the democratic world” - money laundering and the collapse of investors,” the representative of the foreign ministry concluded.
